Fish are all healthy no problems...

I'm sorry to say but IMO your tank is already stocked if not over stocked and adding more fish would just make your life more complicated.

That's already a lot for a ten gallon, especially because those guppies could start breeding. If you dropped the guppies to just 2 females OR 2 males, you could do a dwarf gourami.
